Whats the easyiest/best way to simulate nailholes/plugs in a plank?
Have to find a way! have never build that big scale(1/48) that need it!
It depends on the necessary size of the original nail, treenail or bolt!
So the first question to you: for which element on the section you want to simulate the "nail".

if you are looking for the inside furniture:
These would be only "normal" nails to fix the wooden bord against a smaller pillar - so the head of a used nail would be in reality only maybe 2cm - in scale 1:48 it would be only 0,4mm in diameter.
Because of this very small size I decided in my section only to punch a small hole with a scriber (german: Anreißnadel)

and this is the result:

so therefore it is only a small hole, you can see the difference only when you very very close.

If needed you can easily close the hole with some wood paste, like the above mentioned (available in different colors), and can be sanded afterwards flash with the plank
